Why am I left thinking this is just a money-making exercise without any real purpose?

I could understand it a little better if it was in between a two week break where teams could perhaps test a few things.

I just don't get how you can pack that lot down and transport it to another country overnight ready to race the next day. I'm guessing the cars used will not be the same as the ones in Belgium but surely that would eliminate the teams that struggle to compete financially
